Get a Core i5 laptop, a Core i7 laptop, or just fudge it and assemble a Trinity APU micro-ATX desktop?
November 17th, 2012 06:12 AMTwiggyIt's Jolteeeeeeeeeeooooooooon timeeeeeeeee
Good thing I didn't buy that Orochi now.
It got refreshed with better specs.
Also, I've seen it in person, and it seems like it'll be a good fit.
November 17th, 2012 01:46 AMArcherSorry for the reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally late reply. Been busy and stuff.
That's not playable for me - it's all about what you're used to. I finished the Crysis demo at 5 fps constantly on my laptop years ago. Couldn't do it now.
Windows 8 Laptop, especially if gaming.
And Jolteon >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Everything.
November 1st, 2012 07:09 AMTwiggySo I just tried out Counter-Strike: Global Offensive on the free weekend.
I really need to get a new laptop. But, something strange happened: despite the game running at 10 fps during intense firefights, it's still somehow playable.
Mum called. Someone back home wants it.
Thank goodness for that. Now I only have to think about the next device.
Windows 7 laptop, Windows 8 laptop, or HDD-based Windows 8 convertible? (Tablets are out of the question as there won't be enough horsepower or storage)
Accelerated scroll wheel scrolling is AWESOME on web pages.
The Roccat's going to take me quite a while to get to if subway maps are of any indication. I think I'll take advantage of the break next week - entire week off = fun!
Jolteon or Zorua?
November 1st, 2012 05:13 AMArcherhuh? You're not selling it?
November 1st, 2012 02:42 AMTwiggy*ditches plans to sell laptop*
Mums are best.
Man, a long subway ride? Still better than getting one online.
November 1st, 2012 01:41 AMArcherYeah, the Pyra's still like half the price here, which is why I suggested it. And delivery can't be THAT much. But I totally understand the instant gratification thing, lol.
Yeah, depends on what you're used to. I can't handle a slow mouse or less than 60 fps, but other people seem content with 20 fps and a trackpad, lol.
October 31st, 2012 06:26 AMTwiggyJust remember to take into account shipping for things that they don't sell here.
How slow is slow? If you never notice the latency, you will never notice it. Then again, you've been using a wired gaming mouse for a long time, eh?
Or maybe I'll just stick with this mouse for a long time...
Maybe I'll consider it again after playing games on the laptop.
October 31st, 2012 02:25 AMArcherI have a tough slip-case that goes into my backpack. Works well enough.
Re the Roccat, most 15" laptops have 3 USB ports, so you'd still have the two free like you have at the moment, once you change to another laptop.
You're not going to find any other Bluetooth Gaming mice, because it's an oxymoron. Bluetooth is slooow. If you don't mind plugging in the Orochi when you get home, you're using up a port then. I doubt you'll need more than 3 ports when you're out. Fully up to you, though. Either is fine, just the Roccat is a LOT cheaper.
October 29th, 2012 03:41 AMTwiggyHmm...
Browsing the web, searching for reviews and hands-ons... search engines are very handy, no? Sometimes I have to take into account local availability so that the shipping cost is $0 since I can just walk in and buy it. Hehehe. Instant gratification, too.
In the meantime, I seem to got more than what I've bargained for. Gonna get used to accelerated AND natural scrolling now... Three buttons isn't good enough for any macros, though, so I think a proper gaming mouse is needed for them.
Thank goodness I always use a backpack when I travel with my laptop. I don't like carrying cases at all. The Air feels like it wasn't there in the first place, but I wonder what would it be like if it were a standard laptop.
Speaking of OS X, the Air is now again a dual-boot machine, just like before. OS X and Windows living side-by-side, but seeing as I don't see much use for OS X (not with the software required to use, making me staying in Windows almost all the time), I think I bought something I didn't really need.
Hmm... I think I'll spend the next week trying out gaming mice! (The purchase will come laaaaaaaaaater.)
Also, I have taken a good look at the Orochi, and it's just not tacky enough with the matte option. There's a reason why I'm thinking of that...
(I think I'll keep the Wedge Mobile for the tablet and when the laptop lid is closed.)
The Roccat looks nice, too, but yet another USB dongle-based wireless mouse? I've got enough ports in use already! If my polling rate and response time is compromised, so be it. Not that it quite matters when you can wire it if you really need it, and I don't think I need that much polling while out...
I think it's been a while since the last time I've used a full-sized computer mouse. Over half a year, perhaps?
